We had a problem with a 30 metre deep windmill equipped bore. The water corroded away the 50mm galvanised pipe and mill rods in less than three months. I was about to remove the mill and shut down the bore when it was suggested I install a 20mm Care-Free Conditioner between the pump and the foot valve.
The results were almost instantaneous, the cattle began to drink at the trough, grass grew in the scalded overflow area, the algae disappeared from the trough and best of all, the next lot of pipe rods lasted five years before needing replacing. Best of all, the conditioner cost less than the replacement costs of one lot of pipe rods.
